Our Favorite Books of 2016: Poetry Edition

The Poetry Editor's Favorite Poetry Collections Published in 2016

We have a confession: we hate "best of" lists. Thousands of books are published every year and to try to whittle those books down to a few "best" seems near impossible. Whether a book is good/important/groundbreaking/heartbreaking or not is subjective, and we recognize that. We recognize it's ridiculous to claim to create a definitive list.
